Sounds fishy to me, like the owner might have had it "accidentally" knocked down so he could build a newer one right there. Funny/sad story if it's true as reported.

Some low down dirty scoundrel snuck into my cellar and drank all the good stuff. Leaving behind only empty bottles.

Think I have a claim?

A Russian hiring a Pole. That is a real stretch. Disaster awaits.

The Poles then went to Italy to drink wine, but forgot the spigot was open. LOL

"Won't be pressing charges because the damage has been done".

Riiiight. I've got a beach-front land in Iowa to sell you.

I just want to see how much the insurance payout was on this.
